On base in Fort Hood Texas, driving while intoxicated (DWI) means drunk driving, and the state uses your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) to determine whether you're too intoxicated to operate a motor vehicle. If you are stopped by a Military Police Officer on base at Fort Hood, Texas and you are determined to be driving under the influence different outcomes are possible depending on if you are a civilian or a member of our Armed Forces. If you are a civilian you the Bell County Sherriff's Dept. will be dispatched to arrest you and take you to the Bell County Jail in Belton Texas. If you are a member of our Armed Forces many military actions can be taken in the case against you and you may even be dishonorably discharged from the Armed Forces. Below are the state's BAC limits: - 21 years old or older: 0.08% - Commercial drivers: 0.04% - Younger than 21 years old: Any detectable amount. Alcohol can affect you based on the number of drinks you’ve had, your body weight, and even your gender. Check out the TX blood alcohol percentage charts to learn more.
